Yes, apparently onlookers saw him ailing for quite a while before he collapsed off his horse. Hopefully, he just became overheated in his uniform and fainted instead of having a stroke or heart attack.

I do find it annoying that some are saying 'he was thrown from his horse', as the horse was a total professional. To put blame on the horse for his fall seems incredibly unfair.

It's really nice to see how they made sure that Andrew could shine on this very special day for him: his first Trooping the Colour as a colonel of a household division.

Thank you so much for this explanation ! I was quite puzzled by the prominent place of Andrew today.
Now it makes sense !

Yes, recently he took one over from his grandfather (many people expected him to wear that uniform on his wedding day) but it's not a household division, so no special role at Trooping the Colour.

No. All Colonels of the Guards Regiments are in post.

He had been made Captain General of the Royal Marines - not part of the Household Division.

No. But there are rumors he will take over the Life Guards next year from Lord Guthrie, the man who fainted/passed out today off his horse.

I'm just saying what the rumors are. I have no vested interest in Harry getting the gig over anyone else, including his uncle.

True, but why didn't the Duke of Kent ride with the Queen, instead of with the Sussexes?
HM looked rather lonely, imo.

I saw Prince Richard on the far left of the balcony.

I found it a little sad to see the Queen alone in her carriage. I’m sure she was content enough. I had thought maybe the Duke of Kent would ride with her as he sits with her on the dais.

Ah thank you ! I think it's the Earl of Ulster next to him, but where are the ladies ?

Has anyone seen a photo of the balcony in Horse Guards Parade during the Trooping? Normally we see some of the Royals there, such at the Duchess of Cambridge from memory.
